Last Saturday night I opened an etsy shop called: Fancy That Loved. It will strictly be a supply shop selling items like paper straws & washi tape etc. Like these:
My goal is to fund our Christmas & vacation fund monthly. I hope to have these items up in an ebay shop as well. I have really enjoyed doing this. While I LOVE staying at home with my boys, it is my desire this will be a good outlet for me (not to mention some extra $$ for the family) With our duplexes my favorite thing to do is show the units because I love the kill of a sale, so this has been fun. My shop has been up since Saturday & have had eight sales (thats without a penny of advertising yet!) This next week I'll be spending alot of time 'polishing' it. I'm getting pictures taken by a friend who does photography on the side & hopefully my washi tape up. I've quickly learned it takes ALOT ALOT ALOT of time to get something posted, done, etc, but its a complete labor of love! My goal is to have it all up & going (including my ebay shop) by September 15th!
I plan to open another shop in October with something that i will make. However, I'm not ready to disclose that information on the world wide web yet, but if you ask me in person I'll be SURE to talk your ear off about it :-)
I've also helped my mother-in-law get one started as well...so if you're looking for a one-of-a-kind bridal or wedding gift check out her personalized hangers HERE.
I have a certain ring on my cell phone so when I heart it, I know I got a sale, & with each sale I've done a happy dance!
ohh the blessings of a small mommy business! :-)
